Frontend is constantly evolving and we have to keep it under the radar to build state-of-the-art products. Discover the latest frontend development trends.

We at Fively admire frontend technologies. They never stop evolving and one has to make an effort to stay informed of all the changes because it directly affects the quality and functionality of the products to be built. At the same time, the changes are captivating since we discover new, unexpected directions where the evolving technology leads us.

This blog post is an accumulation of our thoughts concerning frontend development tendencies for this year and beyond. We expect that you will not only read this content but find something to adopt in your projects. Enjoy and share our fascination!

JavaScript Supremacy

If you ask any developer about the basics of frontend, you can expect a response containing information about JavaScript, HTML, and CSS. However, JavaScript attracts the most attention among these three pillars. In 2020 it actually became the most commonly used programming language and was enriched by new features. Therefore, we will see more technological solutions based on JS usage and the programming language will continue to be an important part of tech stacks.

Nonetheless, it is no time to relax for JavaScript admirers. While JS is resting on its laurels, new competitors are emerging and growing stronger. Blazor is a bright example of JS competitors. The framework is used for building interactive web apps using C#. It has been called a JavaScript killer. It will be curious to watch the events unfolding for these two.

The High and the Mighty JS Frameworks

The fact that JavaScript holds leading positions in technology stacks is also proved by the demand for its frameworks. If we look at the Stack Overflow Survey, we will see that developers around the globe love ReactJS. This framework is simple, fast, and requires minimal coding. ReactJS is a nice choice for building web apps with high engagement rates. Corporate giants including Facebook and Airbnb confirm this view and turn to the framework in order to deal with interface-related factors.

Apart from ReactJS, AngularJS, and Vue.js frameworks can be distinguished. The first one is famous for two-way data binding, fast prototyping, and a supportive community because Google is responsible for the maintenance of the framework. The second one is focused on concise and fast UIs and provides easy access.

If you would like to know more about the rising stars in the firmament of frameworks, pay attention to Svelte, which was a breakthrough of 2020 for many developers. The main idea of Svelte is to reduce bundle size and save frame budgets when you build a web app.

The Gatsby Way of Building

Let’s admit that single-page apps have captivated the minds of tech-savvy people all over the world due to their ability to make the web more dynamic and responsive. They work within a browser and don’t need to reload a page while interacting with its content. However, it creates obstacles for SEO which is an important instrument of online business.

There is a way out, though. Some bright minds decided to create a solution to get SPAs indexed. That is exactly what Gatsby does. Gatsby is a static website generator for developing web apps and providing speed, safety, and visibility for search engine crawlers. It is based on React and was named the most demanded static website generator.

Jamstack to not Worry About Backend

Jamstack is another rising star in the frontend firmament. The concept involves tools like JavaScript, APIs, and Markup for static-first web development. Jamstack guarantees security, scalability, quick request responses, and optimized costs for hosting. The named advantages make Jamstack look very promising in front of the dynamic web request cycle.

Frontend developers can work undisturbed, without worrying about the backend part, due to the Jamstack architectural principles. The built applications are empowered by Vue and React, which are mentioned here. One-third of the State of Frontend survey respondents declare that they have already created a solution with the help of Jamstack. Therefore, its further expansion is a question of time.

Micro Frontends for Cohesion

The idea of micro frontends is that self-standing teams can own separate features of a website or a web application. Every team has a certain specialization and responsibility for the end-to-end delivery in their area of responsibility.

With the help of micro frontends we get cohesive and mobile codebases for scalable web solutions. Instead of cracking hard and big nuts, we decompose the goal into separate tasks for separate teams. This approach lets us enrich the ultimate solution and optimize the resources to be used.

Final Thoughts

So, as you can see, most of the trends we highlight are related to JavaScript. It may be explained by the idea that all the concepts that are mentioned above aim at faster software development and have low barriers to entry though provide functional business solutions.

If you would like to implement any trend but feel overwhelmed by the information diversity, let us know. The Fively team will help you to concentrate on the concepts that are most appropriate for your business and implement them.
